FREE Live Theater Performance

Saturday, September 25 - 2:00pm

Oakley Library 1050 Neroly Road The Oakley Library presents the Vagabond Players in “A Bench in the Sun”. The Vagabond Players Theatre Company is a 12 year old self-producing company of actors, directors, writers and composers committed to the professional production of quality theater works.

“A Bench in the Sun” is a simple story of two old fogies in a retirement home bickering about the mundane life they lead. One is a crusty old accountant who prefers to stay in his pajamas all day, the other a suave, debonair fellow who loves to dance. They find a new topic of bickering— an aging “glitzy” movie star who moves in—which will provide many hearty laughs and leave you with joy in your heart.
